Are you sure the second battery doesn't have the polarity mixed up. If you plug in a battery with the negative pole making contact with the positive of the esc, then magic smoke shall appear...I have made that mistake. The other potential problem could be the capacitor, it could hold a charge and for some reason sends a charge back through the esc. Just a guess, I've only had smoking from plugging the battery in wrong. Perhaps the esc is too weak for the setup, and you are destroying it as it is flying.
